What Taylor forgot to mention in the last blog is that we also got a new sofa, and loveseat. Here are pictures of them...Aren't the pillows goofy? Yeah I'll have to do something about that...
The top picture is the love seat, and the bottom picture is the sofa.

It's Been So Long!

So we really haven't posted much since we got married. What can you expect though, we have been really busy.

We went on our honeymoon to Midway, Utah and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. We were in Midway for a couple of days, and it was just nice to relax and to not have to worry about anything. Getting married can be stressful, and especially the day of your ceremony is a really long day (as wonderful as it is, it is still a really long day). We layed low, even went and saw a movie, and it was great to have those days to relax and getting ready for our Mexico Trip.

Mexico was awesome. It was warm enough, but it wasn't really sunny for the first couple of days that we were there. We hung around the pool a lot, had a fun time watching some of the crazy people that were down there. There was one kid that sat around the pool all day, and he had rubbed oil all over his chest, so he was this really wierd shiny orange color. GROSS! We also went on a tour of Puerto, and Ashley and I got in a fight with some people Ecuador that were on the tour with us. "Oh, you think that you are so especial, you from america, you can take peoples seats, no respect. NO RESPECT."

One of my favorite things was Rythyms of the Night. It was a dinner cruise that took us to the other side of the bay, where there was no electricity and there was only torch and candle light. They had a show that was a modern dance showing Ancient Mexican Culture from the Area. It was really cool. At the end of the show, one of the perfomers lit the stairs on fire that he was walking up. They also had seperate dancers that would twirl ropes that were lit on fire. That was really cool. After the show we had dinner, and then it was a return ride across way with dancing and drinking (non-alcoholic for us of course...).

So after Mexico, it was back to the real world. We have been married for just over 4 weeks now and it has been great. We have been able to do a lot of really fun things since we have been married. Currently, we are living with Ashley's parents until our townhome is finished in October or November. For the first couple of weeks, we have just been sleeping on the bed that Ashley had before we got married. Now, it's a nice, comfortable bed, but it's a queen. And I am a large guy, and I tend to roll over a lot. Well in the first couple of weeks I have accidently headbutted and elbowed Ashley. So needless to say, we were both very happy when we got a King Sized bed this Tuesday. It was so nice to have an abundance of room. The bed is really tall though. With Ashley standing on it, her head touches the ceiling. Needless to say, a short person might need a stool to get on the bed.

Another thing that we did was that we have now planted a salsa garden. We have planted 6 or 7 tomato plants and 5 different kinds of peppers. We both really love chips and salsa so it will be fun come August when we can start trying different recipes and seeing who can come up with the spiciest treat. This is the second time that I have done this, so I am really excited to see if I can do better with the peppers this year, than I did the last time.

All in all, being married is great! I have loved every minute of it, and I look forward to many years to come.

Fun Pictures

Taylor's siblings at the Temple.
Don't we look great?

My siblings at the Temple. I don't know what Taylor said or Spencer did to get these faces, but it made us laugh.

Here is my big sister Kristin. She did most of the flower arrangements for my reception. She has mad skills. I don't know what Taylor is doing in the background, but he looks happy to be there!

My bff, (not just for now) Lo!

My Southern Granny. She is so proper. My favorite thing is to hear her say dollar. I'll try and do my best impression but it just isn't the same. She likes to play cards, and it's always funny to get a rise out of her when you accuse her of cheating, even though she never does.

So I know these next two are practically the same picture, but for some reason I just laugh and love this candid shot!

Uh....Yeah my brother and I are quite the characters. I'm not sure if we are singing Sweet Caroline, or Friends in Low Places.


I can't believe it has been over a month since I posted. Taylor and I got married on May 21st. It was an awesome day despite it being so cold and windy. At least it didn't rain. We were grateful for that. After we got married we spent some time up at the Zermatt resort in my parent's villa. Then on Memorial Day we went to Mexico! I'll be honest the first day I was in Mexico I was a little worried. It seems like we drove through the "bad" part of town, and I thought to myself "what did I get myself into?" After we got to our resort though everything was fine and dandy! Taylor made this collage of photo's from Mexico. I'll post more from the wedding and from Mexico as soon as I get them! I hope you enjoy the little preview!
